Spotify Highlights for Your Mind, Body & Soul

Listening to music can be incredibly therapeutic. Music can lift your mood, reduce stress, and help you fall asleep. Music activates almost all regions of your brain and can help you feel better in a variety of ways. 

Listening to music triggers pleasure centres that release dopamine, a naturally occurring chemical that positively affects your mood. Music can help us override symptoms of fatigue and distract us from different stressors that cause anxiety. Music has also been shown to have a positive effect on sleep, with many people using music to help them fall asleep and stay asleep for longer.

With that in mind, today we share our favourite healing Spotify Playlists that are great for relaxing, meditation and just generally unwinding from your day. 

The Most Relaxing Playlist in The World

Bid farewell to stress with this playlist of 86 ambient tracks specifically chosen for their soothing sounds. One of the highlights is ‘Weightless’ by Marconi Union, named by scientists as the most relaxing song in the world.

Meditate to the Sounds of Nature

Whether you’re looking for background music for meditation or a relaxation aid to help you fall asleep, these calm ambient tracks with gentle nature sounds can help create a calm environment and quiet a busy mind.       

Deep Sleep

Studies have suggested that music can promote better sleep by reducing blood pressure and reducing the blood levels of cortisol, the stress hormone. This playlist by Spotify features 306 songs selected for their soothing, minimalist ambient sounds to promote deep sleep. 

Jazz For Sleep

Dim the lights, find a cozy place to relax, and prepare your mind and body for quality sleep with this playlist of mellow, soft and relaxing instrumental jazz tracks.

Yoga and Meditation

Relax and breathe. These 317 gentle instrumental tracks create the perfect backdrop for meditation, gentle yoga and relaxation. 

Alpha Waves Atmospheres

Alpha waves fall in the centre of your brainwave spectrum between 8-12Hz. Because your brain produces these types of waves when you feel relaxed, these can promote feelings of calm and increased creativity and help you concentrate. This Spotify playlist focuses on relaxing ambient and minimal electronic music designed to help you tap into your alpha waves frequency for better concentration, mood and focus.
